The Hyllningfest Parade puts on display a variety of notions of Swedishness - also contradictory and subversive ones - to the large numbers of spectators, the majority of whom are visitors from out of town. In this study, based on ethnographic fieldwork, Lizette Graden of Stockholm University examines the enactment of the parade and how individuals living in the United States select and affirm concepts and phenomena as particularly Swedish.
